We "Heart" Taylor Swift!





After Maddy's slight obsession/love for High School Musical waned a while back, her taste in music moved on to sweet Taylor Swift! She devised a great plan to get Taylor into our family which involved Taylor meeting Connor, falling in love with him, marrying him and then . . . voila - Maddy and Taylor would be sisters!!

Great plan and even Connor agreed that it sounded good to him.


Months ago, I heard that the bigger city near us would be the start of Taylor's North American "Speak Now" tour. I quickly joined her fan club (yes, I did!) and was alerted to an early ticket sale time. She evidently has a huge fan club as the seats I got were still a bit up in the rafters - even after buying them months and months ago before they went on sale to the general public.





[Doing the Taylor wave!]

Anyway, it was an end of the school year treat for Maddy and me. The concert was last Saturday and was fabulous!!!!!!! No kidding -- she was amazing! I think it was more like a Vegas show than just a concert. Of course, never having been to Vegas, I wouldn't know what the shows are like, but it was quite a huge production! We enjoyed every single second and it was so fun to watch Maddy singing along. Taylor is so sweet and beautiful and has such a lovely voice! Although we weren't able to manage a meeting between her and Connor, we are still hopeful! If anyone out there knows Taylor, would you put in a good word for Connor!!




[Still plotting on how to get Taylor and Connor together!]

Great pictures of Miss Maddy! I agree, the show was awesome, even from the rafters. So glad you had a great time.

Emma adores Taylor Swift too. She'll be jealous to know that Maddy was able to get tickets. How cool! Beautiful pictures of Maddy. Love the scarf. Best of luck getting Taylor and Connor together!

I would love to see Taylor Swift. Although I wouldn't tell Bill! Glad you had a great time. And, I love how Miss Maddy's nails coordinate with her nails.

What FUN! I would have enjoyed the concert, that's for sure. I love her music! I LOVE that last picture of Maddy! I think I have a few years left before concert time, however, as Allison is just now listening to "big girl" songs on Barbie.com. Ha!

How exciting. Taylor came to my hometown festival about years ago just before she made it big. My brother had dinner with her and got her autograph.

You were so lucky to have gotten tickets. She's actually performing in my area tonight. I didn't realize she was coming until it was way too late. I would have loved to have gone with my daughter. We've loved TS for quite some time. I've heard she really puts on a great show.

Love these pictures of Maddy. She's getting so grown up. :-)

It sounds like you gals had loads of fun at the concert. I heard it was FABULOUS! Did you count how many times she changed clothes! So glad you enjoyed the show! Wish we could have joined you!

Casey said...

Love it!!! Sounds like a great concert. And her plan might work :)

Kristin said...

How fun!! My girls (all three of them) would love to go. Katie has seen Taylor in concert before and wanted to take the little girls when she came to ATL again. But, we couldn't get tickets.

You definitely made memories that night. =)
